Why did you start your business?
I got my degree in Arts with a concentration in Photography. This was before digital:) Digital came out right after I graduated and I was not sure about the whole digital thing so I went into IT Sales. I never gave up my camera. I then had the most amazing gift ever, my son. I realized I wanted to get back into my passion. I realized I missed creating memories for families. It is SO much fun!
Why did you enter this industry?
I backpacked through Europe and Asia. My favorite photos were of the people I met and their faces. You can see people for who they really are in photos. You can see the happiness in parents to be, parents of a newborn, children, and families.
What challenges did you face launching your business?
1. Getting my name out there. 2. What websites host to use. 3. Booking enough clients to keep afloat
